Sara's Fave Photos Blog

Check out my new book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory. And welcome to Sara's Fave Photos Blog at Love That Image. My goal is to take a photo that is as compelling and beautiful as in real life, with no or minimal Photoshop work. You may copy a photo but link to lovethatimage.com. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, and thanks for visiting.

A year of memories

I have posted about this Memory Jar before, but here it is again. A wonderful idea for your 2019 New Year!

Starting January 1, write good things that happen to you on little pieces of paper.

• Surprise gifts
• Accomplished goals
• The beauty of nature
• “LOL” moments
• Memories worth saving
• Daily blessings

Then on Dec. 31, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you this year.

Create a memory jar for the year. So fun to read at the end of the year!

Daytime Christmas tree

Our Christmas Eve day tree. I like how it looks in the daytime almost as much as the nighttime.

Here’s a view of Seattle you won’t see for very much longer, taken November 2016. Note the Great Wheel, the construction cranes, the Space Needle, and the Viaduct roadway, soon to be torn down.
